Big rig, pickup truck collide on River Road; one injured

A collision between a big rig and a pickup truck left one person injured Friday morning and closed River Road northwest of Santa Rosa, according to the CHP.

The driver of the Toyota Tundra complained of pain and was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, a CHP dispatch officer said.

CHP officers were called at 9:10 a.m. to the scene of the accident on River Road near Olivet Road. The big rig was blocking River Road and was leaking transmission fluid. The Toyota had "major front-end damage," according to the dispatch officer.

The road was reopened at 10:30 a.m. once both vehicles were towed and the transmission fluid was cleaned up, the CHP officer said.
